Prince Mbonisi At It Again, Fresh Legal Bid To Block King Misizulu's Coronation

Prince Mbonisi is at it again, he has pursued a fresh bid to block King Misuzulu's coronation.

Prince Mbonisi who is the stepbrother to the late King Goodwill Zwelithini is not prepared to rest his case, one would swear that he is behind the death of the late King Goodwill Zwelithini. Prince Mbonisi has filed yet an urgent application with Pretoria High Court where he seeks to set aside the recognition and coronation of King Misuzulu as the next King of the Zulu nation. The Prince also wants the coronation term to be disbanded and Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi who is the traditional prime minister of the Zulu nation interdicted from threatening those opposed to the de facto King with violence and from calling any royal meetings.

Prince Mbonisi emphasizes that Prince Buthelezi is an outsider who is only trying to achieve the political goals of his political party. He wants his request to be heard on July 26th which is exactly three weeks before the mooted two-legged coronations of King Misuzulu on August thirteenth. The coronation is scheduled to take place in Nongoma and Durban respectively. The application happens after the royals had mixed feelings about the ritual hunt which was held a week ago.

His application is backed by thirteen other senior royals which include Prince Vulindlela, Prince Mathuba, Prince Mxolisi, and Princes Lindiwe. They also revealed a letter written by the late King Goodwill Zwelithini saying that nothing should be done without their knowledge as they are considered to be core members of the Royal Household. They still argue that King Misuzulu is not the lawful appointed Zulu King. The group says that President Cyril Ramaphosa, the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, and the premier of the KwaZulu-Natal provincial government are interdicted from authorizing any expenditure or taking any decision in form of Section 23 of the traditional leadership act to offer any administrative and financial support to King Misuzulu, o the basis that he is Bayede. Finally, he seeks the court to ban Prince Thulani Zulu from speaking as the spokesperson of the royal family.
